How to watch the new Godzilla TV show ‘Monarch’ on Apple TV+

The new Godzilla universe TV show Monarch: Legacy of Monsters is available to watch now on Apple TV+. Set after the events of the Godzilla (2014) movie, the show dives deep into the Monarch organization, spanning multiple family timelines. Here’s how to stream.

The Monarch TV show sees two siblings slowly unravel the mysteries of the secretive Monarch organization, including previously unknown family ties in a world that has been confronted by the fact that monsters are indeed real.

While not necessarily the focus, Godzilla himself does appear in the series, even from the first episode in a tense dramatic flashback. Other monsters appear throughout the show, with high-budget CGI sequences. The series is designed to be accessible for new viewers, too, but includes many references that will resonate with existing fans of the Monsterverse franchise.

Father and son duo Kurt Russell and Wyatt Russell play the same character in the show, Officer Lee Shaw. Wyatt plays the young version of Shaw, and Kurt portrays the same character in the modern-day timeline when Shaw is older. Anna Sawai and Kiersey Clemons round out the main cast.
